WHO ARE YOU ? WHAT DO YOU DO ?



I am a music producer, composer, songwriter, for image and sound representation, story, installation, and performance.


My project-based sound and visual media are generally geared toward public engagement and live performance.


I have toured internationally, performing at art museums, galleries, cultural centers, town halls, youth centers, shelters, public schools, public libraries, local and international music and contemporary art festivals and gallery spaces.


I have given artist & diversity talks at Riletta Twyne Cream Family School in Camden, New Jersey for a 2nd grade class - Germain Tillon High School in île-de-France - and a performance with a question & answer segment for a permanent housing shelter for elderly facing homelessness or domestic violence, in Brest, France.



WHAT INFORMS YOUR WORK ?



My family and i moved every 1-2 years due to health issues facing my parents and two siblings. I have never lived in one home for more than 2 years my entire life. As a child, i attended a total of 7 different schools, and have lived in 6 different countries as an adult. Currently, i am based in Albania.


I am second generation American, Haïtian-Filipino (Jeanjacques-Ongsingco) and Puerto Rican (Córdova-Alarcón). I was born in the Mohave Desert, Mohave County, Arizona - 17 FEBRUARY 1984 - the sun in Aquarius cusp Pisces - Sagittarius rising - moon in Virgo - Venus in Capricorn - Mars in Scorpio - North Node in Gemini - Chiron in Taurus - non binary - 5'7" (175 cm) - 120 lbs (55 kg)



WHAT ARE YOUR INTENTIONS AS AN ARTIST ? DOES YOUR WORK REFLECT A SPECIFIC MESSAGE ?



I want to offer inspiration towards the maturing of our societies.


I think there is a common thread in all of my work which speaks to the challenges of manipulative, oppressive, social governing and policing systems.
